Shut the doors! Shut the doors! 'The Mist' is real

Two days late for April Fools, dagnabbit!

Isn't this pic a little scary for those moviemakers out in The Shreve? This morning, photographer Greg Pearson snapped this little ditty of the downtown skyline. It is nature's reminder that, just about a year ago, "The Mist" was shot downtown inside StageWorks of Louisiana. Literally just blocks away from where this photo was taken. Ooohhh.

Times reporter Stephanie Netherton sits and shivers next to me in the newsroom on a daily basis. She sarcastically wondered aloud if "The Mist" makers were back to shoot a sequel. Much to my dismay, no, but at least the flicks out on DVD now.

Apparently, Stephanie suffers the aftereffects of "The Mist's" hypnotic powers. She's seen the movie and no longer digs on ground-sweeping clouds. "It's kind of eerie now," she said. "I'm kind of weird about fog."

P.S. Oh, hell. I just wrote a post about the weather. Please don't leave me, Dear Readers. I meant no harm.

Really, you never know what's in the mist.

What's next, the dark?

Stephanie typed that comment from under her desk, I'll have you know.

This one had a better ending.
